Solutions for drilling and jack-up rigs

We also offer solutions for drilling and jack-up rigs. These platforms have varying needs and operational conditions, as well as limited opportunities for service and maintenance, so we focus on simple and reliable construction.

Our offering comprises integrated water and waste management systems and corrosion-protection systems for offshore platforms and vessels.

Thanks to our global service network we can offer support, spare parts, and service in 70 countries across six continents.

Corrosion protection systems

Our Cathelco corrosion protection systems, based on impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP) technology, are supplied for drilling rigs operating around the world. Our highly experienced corrosion engineers can design systems that provide optimal protection against corrosion throughout the life of the structure.

ICCP systems consist of an arrangement of anodes and reference electrodes wired to one or more control panels. Our expertise lies in positioning the anodes to achieve the most effective pattern of current “spread” and avoiding areas of “shadowing”. In some instances this requires a combination of ICCP and sacrificial anodes.

Our Cathelco anodes and reference electrodes are designed to last up to 15 years – and because they are diver changeable they can easily be replaced if required within this timeframe.
